I am late with my writing. I've been breeding a virus, I guess a flu. After two mega doses of IV vitamins I am still tired but no longer shaking constantly.
Last night to distract myself to sleep, I watched the new Yogi Bear movie on Netflix. Having nodded off to sleep mid way through, I would still recommend it for a family movie night.
I've been drinking honey and herbal teas and plenty of green tea too. I managed a short walk yesterday and today I been mainly dividing my time between the couch and my bed.
I've been dreaming of a modest shed/tiny house but must await to see if I will be eligible for a payout from my super insurance. Even then, I will struggle to find something. In the mean time I am looking to divide myself between my mum's house, my dad and his dog's and my uncle's house. It keeps me from getting too bored with the scenery. I must admit I like dogs and cats around, even if they can sometimes be a bit tricky to look after. Dogs seem much more settled and content than cats who seem to have a mind of their own. I've waited for a cat to come in at 2 am in the morning more times that I would like to admit.
I found a really lovely, soft, delicious gluten loaf of bread at the local shop but it was $8. And, it took me a very short and enjoyable time to eat it. I think I will have to experiment more with making my own loaves. I'm not sure I could make an equivalent loaf for less than $8. Back in the day when I thought I could eat whatever I liked I remember my mum sometimes buying day old white bread for a $1. I would grill it with baked beans and tomato on top. Then I would go for long walks because the house we were living in was a bit too cosy for my mental health sometimes. I never had much money so I never really ate as much gluten based food as my peers. Probably good for my health but now I have pizza regret, I wish I ate more.
There, life's been quiet.
